Ventured into Norfolk yesterday, very nice it was too, lovely weather and lovely soil :thumbsup:

My find of the day was the medieval swinging harness mount complete with backplate,proberbly 14th century, must of made a fair old clatter with a few of these mounted on a horse when it was galloping toward you to chop your head off, as if the hooved wouldnt of been load enough :lol:

Quite a few coins and tokens but none silver today, an interesting Norwich castle token ive not been able to ID as yet, a lot of digging was done, I think I racked up 7 hours or as good as with only one quick refreshment stop, dont think I will get a chance next week as work is rearing its ugly head, maybe at the weekend if i'm a good boy :D :lol: :thumbsup:

Great finds Phil, lovely harness pendant,
Yep, all that rattling & jangling coming towards you, either a medieval Knight's pendants or Jimmy Saville's jewellery,
I think I'll choose the Knight chopping my head off! :shock:
